"We have been very pleased with the working relationship with Matthew and Christy Johns. They built our new home in 2007-2008 and the detail work Matthew and his crew did was outstanding. My wife and I have worked with many contractors in our business and personal homes and Matthew Johns Construction ranks at the top of the list for being so easy to work with and superior quality of workmanship."

"My wife and I have had several occasions to call on Matthew for assistance with our household issues, some of which have been major!  He is always prompt in response, expert in his analysis, and provides a written estimate before starting.  His bills have  been less or equal to the estimate -- never exceeded without re-estimating additional work.  The quality of Matthew's subcontractors is excellent!  He supervises the job closely, but selects expert subcontractors who know what they are doing.  Also,  Matthew requires that his subcontractors are licensed and insured, which gives us extra confidence.   We have recommended Matthew to several friends, and have been gratified to hear their enthusiastic appraisal of the work he did for them.   We continue to ask for his help and to share him with our friends who need assistance."

"When we decided to remodel our kitchen, we contacted several builders and were dismayed by the lack of follow up.  Based on a recommendation from Wilmington Cabinet Company, we called Mathew Johns.  We were pleased by his prompt response on an estimate, his fair price for the proposed work and his knowledge of the job.  The entire process working with Mathew and his subs was excellent.  The work was well coordinated and the demolition and build out was right on schedule.  We were often amazed just how responsive both Mathew and his subcontractors were.  They showed up on time and return promptly to resolve any issues.  Walter is a retired builder and he is very impressed with both the quality and management of the job by Mathew.  We have and would recommend Mathew Johns Construction to others without reservation.

"My wife and I recently had the pleasure of building a custom home in the The Landings on Skidaway Island.  We selected Matthew Johns Construction to be our builder.  In the selection process, we decided Matthew Johns because of his pragmatic approach to the process.  He worked with us on every detail and gave us options on how to address issues as they came up.  As a builder and a person, Matthew is exceptional.  He was always available and is extremely honest.

We have built eleven custom homes and given our overall experience we would definitely build another home with Matthew.  We would not hesitate recommending Matthew Johns Construction to anyone interested in building a new home or remodeling an existing home."

"When we decided to add a bonus room to our home at the Landings, we made inquiries of a number of our friends as to contractors they would recommend. Several recommended that we talk with Matthew Johns. Although we had a good sense as to how we wanted the space to be designed and constructed (such as relocating the existing stairs and adding a new bathroom), during our initial meetings with Matthew he helpfully offered a number of changes and enhancements for our consideration that we decided to incorporate.

Over the past thirty years or so, we have not only been involved in the construction of a number of new homes but also have completely renovated a substantial number of older homes----so we have had the opportunity to work with a variety of contractors and sub-contractors. Without doubt, our experience working with Matthew and his wife, Christy (who is actively involved in the company), has been outstanding.  They are not only enjoyable to work with but take a high degree of pride in the work and level of service they provide.  Because we were away from the Landings when the construction work was being done, we were kept regularly updated with emails and pictures, and any questions or concerns we raised were addressed promptly by either Matthew or Christy.  
After completion of the new room---which exceeded our expectations in a number of respects---we had some "punch list" items that we asked Matthew to address.  Based on our experience with other contractors, I appreciate that these matters often go to the bottom of their "to do" list; but any call we made would always be followed by a quick return call or visit from either Matthew or Christy to deal with the issue.

Based on our over-all experience with our project, I would strongly recommend that anyone in the Savannah area who is contemplating any construction or improvement to their home put Matthew Johns Construction at the very top of their list of contractors."

"One of the first houses we saw at The Landings was a Matthew Johns’ house. Matthew stopped by; we liked his honest, friendly and straightforward style and were impressed by his work. We decided to build partly because of Matthew and bought a marsh/water view lot at The Landings. The whole building process went very smoothly. Christy Johns is the other part of the team. She made recommendations, set up all of our supplier appointments and included driving directions. As newcomers to Savannah this was a great help and enabled us to make the critical decisions to keep the project on schedule. Matthew gave us a finish date of the end of January, 2009 and that’s when we moved in. The house was finished as promised. We love our house and all the compliments we get regarding the attention to detail and quality of the workmanship. Matthew and Christy were a pleasure to work with; they listen and deliver a quality product. We don’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone!"

"Double “WOW”, Mathew Johns Construction produced a great home for us. We were ahead of schedule, under budget and exceeded our quality expectations. Mathew and Christy were always there to make our project a wonderful experience. I come from a real estate building background, so I know what to look for and expect. Mathew beat our expectations in every aspect. On a scale of 1 to 10, Mathew Johns Construction is an eleven."
~Jim and Elizabeth Overton, 7 Heatherstone Retreat
"We have had a great experience working with Matthew and his people over the past two years on several projects.  He has been extremely responsive and flexible no matter what the size of the project.  His creative and practical approach is refreshing and his attention to detail is a rarity in the business.  We have worked with many contractors over the years and find Matthew to be at the top of the list in fairness, quality and timeliness of execution."

In 2009 we were ready to begin construction of our home. Upon the recommendation of our realtor at The Landings Company we met Matthew Johns. This was going to be a long distance adventure as during the construction process we were living at our cabin in Minnesota. We met with Matthew and he assured us it would be a smooth process as he had managed long distance projects for previous customers. Needless to say the process was smooth and seamless. We planned periodic trips to make needed selections and view the progress. Communication and customer service was excellent and timely. We are very pleased with the quality workmanship of our new home and greatly enjoyed the working relationship with Matthew and Christy. We would highly recommend their company.

When we first purchased our home at The Landings, Pete promised that within five years we could update our kitchen.  We had no idea who we would hire to do the work.  We attended several Landings events which had vendors.  Then we met Matthew Johns.  We were impressed with the home that was being showcased and the owner had praise for Matthew.

When it was time, we called Matthew.  He responded quickly with many wonderful ideas and contacts for appliances, granite, lighting and all the other “little” things that go into remodeling.  Matthew and Christy are up to date on all the trends and the best quality products.  Their expertise was evident as they assisted us in our selections.  They were very cognizant of our style, preferences and budget.

Matthew is true to his word and stands by his contractors.  He honors the quote that he gives and corrects any issues that may arise.  Matthew is reliable, and we all know how important that is.

We are so pleased with his service that we call on him as needed including window replacements, painting, etc.  We have arranged with him to annually examine the house for any repairs that might be necessary to avoid any major issues.

Bottom line, we highly recommend Matthew Johns.
